The heart of our festival is international music and dance performers from around the globe. We will be joining artists in looking to come back even stronger after the disappointment of losing so many events worldwide in 2020.
There is still much uncertainty over 2021, but we will hope for improved conditions as we make initial plans for a return of our own event.
We welcome inquiries, recommendations and expressions of interest.
Important WMDF links and dates:

The planned festival dates are the same as always: August 5-11. Watch out for the rescheduled calendar of the Tokyo 2020 events (due to start on Jul 23), as planes may be more full and more expensive than usual. IOC officials have suggested that the Olympics will go ahead ‘with or without Covid’; we will wait to see what is possible for events with fewer resources.
